Thank you both :) I do have all the basics covered and he is coming along well and making a lot of progress. He was very fearful when he arrived. He is still nervous around his head but much better than he was, I am afraid he has some bad memories from his previous life.
I was thinking we would work on some dressage to start off when he is ready, though one of the trainers I know is dying to see him jump. Not so sure about that with his right front issue. I just want him to be sound, healthy and have some work that he enjoys. He is a real sweetie.
